The first 2 films are with people on hospital beds whose minds are alert while their bodies are not… And in the 3rd film someone is dying… Sound fun?
Awake, with Hayden Christensen, Jessican Alba, and Terrence Howard. A rich guy is AWAKE on a surgery table and hears them plotting his demise. Slight rip off of a Hitchcock film. Looks like it has promise, but if it all ends up all being a dream I may have to hurt a small animal.
The Diving Bell and the Butterfly (Le Scaphandre el le Papillon) with Mathiey Amalric, Emmanuelle Seigner, Marie-Josée Corze, and Anne Consigny. Srceenplay by Ronald Harwood, the writer of Pianist, Being Julia and many others. After an accident, a man who trapped in his own body, sets his mind free- Sure to leave you crying- possibly with joy.
Savages- Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman it what looks like a good light-hearted comedy about having to grow up and take care of their sick father…need I say more?
And that’s it for what is new this week! Check in next week for your weekend movies!
